Tumours formed from peripheral nerve sheaths are rare in the shoulder. We present the case of a 80-year-old female referred to an orthopaedic surgery clinic because of a large painless mass of the right shoulder, with one year of evolution. There was no history of trauma, involvement of any other joint or systemic complaints. Given the clinical and imagiological suspicion of a giant synovial cyst, the patient underwent complete surgical resection of the mass, which took place without any complications or functional impairment...

AIMS: To reveal the prevalence of Diabetes Mellitus (DM) in patients with newly diagnosed Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) and evaluate the association between clinical characteristics of RA and DM as well as treatment response in newly diagnosed RA patients with DM. METHODS: Newly diagnosed, adult, RA patients, who were registered in Danish Danbio since 1st January 2010, were included. Patients' demographics, serology results including rheumatoid factor (RF), anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide antibody (anti-CCP) and antinuclear antibody (ANA) as well as disease activity score in 28 joints-C-reactive protein (DAS28-CRP) at the time of diagnosis and after 4 months (±1-2 months) of treatment initiation were extracted from Danbio Registry...

Erythema elevatum diutinum is a rare neutrophilic dermatoses with vasculitis, which presents as persistent, symmetrical, purple or brownish papules and nodules, mainly in the extensor surface of the limbs. We describe a case of erythema elevatum diutinum and polyarthritis as initial manifestations of Crohn's disease associated spondyloarthritis. A 51-year-old man, from São Tomé e Príncipe, with previous history of treated tuberculosis and chronic hepatitis B infection, was admitted due to 4 months history of polyarthritis, hyperpigmented papules on the extensor surfaces, occasional episodes of bloody mucous diarrhea and significant weight loss...

Patient registries are key instruments aimed at a better understanding of the natural history of diseases, at assessing the effectiveness of therapeutic interventions, as well as identifying rare events or outcomes that are not captured in clinical trials. However, the potential of registries goes far beyond these aspects. For example, registries promote the standardization of clinical practice, can also provide information on domains that are not routinely collected in clinical practice and can support decision-making...

Biosimilars are new and more affordable similar versions of previously approved reference biological drugs. Following the approval of the first monoclonal antibody biosimilar in 2013, the Portuguese Society of Rheumatology issued a position paper on the use of biosimilars in rheumatic conditions covering efficacy, safety, extrapolation, interchangeability, substitution and pharmacovigilance. However, as this is a rapidly evolving field, it was felt that the knowledge and evidence gathered since then justified an update of these statements...

OBJECTIVE: To update the recommendations for the treatment of axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA) with biological therapies, endorsed by the Portuguese Society of Rheumatology. METHODS: These treatment recommendations were formulated by Portuguese rheumatologists based on literature evidence and consensus opinion. At a national meeting, the 7 recommendations included in this document were discussed and updated. A draft of the full text of the recommendations was then circulated and suggestions were incorporated...

OBJECTIVE: There is a lack of outcome measures to assess the impact of axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA) on health, function and quality of life. The Assessment of SpondyloArthritis International Society (ASAS) group developed the ASAS Health Index (ASAS-HI) and the ASAS Environmental Factors Item Set (ASAS-EF) to measure functioning and health across all aspects of health that are typically affected and relevant for patients with axSpA, based on the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF)...

Ackerman's Syndrome or Intersticial Granulomatous Dermatitis with Arthritis has been an issue of increasing number of reports in the last decade which had focused its heterogeneous cutaneous and rheumatologic expression besides the initial manifestations reported by Ackerman and his group. Granulomatosis anterior uveitis has not been previously described. Some patients are reported to have positive autoantibodies but association with anticentromere antibodies has not been previously described as well, to our knowledge...

INTRODUCTION: Spinal involvement is infrequent in chronic gout. However, some cases of back pain with radiculopathy secondary to this etiology have been reported. CASE REPORT: 56-year old male patient, with history of arterial hypertension, hypertriglyceridemia, obesity, glucose intolerance and alcohol abuse, diagnosed with gout in his fifth decade of life. The patient was started on urate lowering therapy, with poor compliance, and evolved with sustained hyperuricemia, recurrent episodes of arthritis, and growth of gouty tophi on the elbows, wrists, hands and knees...

Systemic sclerosis is a connective tissue disease characterized by a complex pathogenesis and a multi organ involvement of unknown etiology. Genetic features and environmental factors, as the use of some drugs, influence the onset of the clinical picture. The authors describe a case of a patient who developed systemic sclerosis after treatment of melanoma with interferon alfa-2b, drug rarely implicated in the induction of this disease.

OBJECTIVE: To assess Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) and toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN) in a large population of childhood-onset systemic lupus erythematosus (cSLE) patients. METHODS: Multicenter study including 852 cSLE patients followed in Pediatric Rheumatology centers in São Paulo, Brazil. SJS was defined as epidermal detachment below 10% of body surface area (BSA), overlap SJS-TEN 10-30% and TEN greater than 30% of BSA. RESULTS: SJS and TEN was observed in 5/852 (0...

<p>A case report of SLE with PLE in an Asian female; presented with edema, pleural effusion, ascites and profound hypoalbuminemia. She also had severe protein C and protein S depletion from GI loss which caused extensive thrombosis. Her disease was refractory to the treatment with high dose steroid, azathioprine, mycophenolate mofetil and cyclophosphamide. Bowel resection was performed without improvement. Fortunately, the patient responded to another course of pulse methyl prednisolone and a second line medication after surgery...

INTRODUCTION: Aging of the population and early retirement translates into productivity losses to society. Persistence of working life is crucial to counteract this sustainability issue faced by western countries. Musculoskeletal and rheumatic diseases (RD) may cause work disability and early exit from work, including early retirement. The objective of this article is to review the current knowledge about interventions aiming to reduce early retirement due to RD. METHODS: We searched PubMed and The Cochrane Library for studies either in English or Portuguese between January 2000 and June 2016 that evaluated the impact of interventions targeting early retirement in RD patients still at work...
